The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC provides lifesaving direct services to families and children in emergencies and is a global leader in developing best practice and evidence-based approaches to programming for the protection and empowerment of women, men, girls and boys. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
The IRC is co-lead of the Child Protection Case Management Task Force (CMTF) under the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action, and a core member of the Child Protection Information Management System (CPIMS) Steering Committee). Following the development of the Child Protection Case Management Guidelines and training materials, the Child Protection Supervision and Coaching Toolkit, and other key materials, the IRC in conjunction with the Case Management Task Force is leading a project to design, develop, pilot, and disseminate a phased training package for caseworkers.
